Contribution to GIN

  • Committed Individual member since 2010
  • Founder and Chair of GIN Low and Middle Income Countries (LMIC) Working Group.
  • Member, GIN Membership Sub Committee (since 2016).
  • Drafted a paper to enhance GIN membership by increasing perception of value for members.
  • Invited as Plenary session Speaker at GIN 2016.
  • Presented in every Annual Conference since 2015.


Vision for GIN

In the next three years, GIN could be a truly global society,  also committed to unempowered and/or low resource settings. If I were to be elected as Individual Trustee, I would bring a different perspective to the Board, ensuring that the voice of LMIC members/institutions/organisations is heard during strategic discussions and decisions.
